PIR Movement sensor board with easyC
PIR Movement sensor board with easyC

A PIR (passive infrared) motion sensor is a device that detects physical movement within its field of vision by sensing changes in infrared radiation. This sensor works on the principle of detecting thermal thermal signals emitted by objects, mostly warm-blooded creatures like humans. The “passive” in the name refers to the fact that the sensor itself does not emit or radiate any energy for detection.

 

When it detects motion, the sensor sends a digital signal to the microcontroller. The angle that the sensor “sees” is 100 degrees and reaches up to 5 meters. It is often used in a variety of applications, including home security systems, automatic lighting, and energy management, among others.

 

Our breakout board simplifies the use of the PIR sensor by using easyC technology, making it easily connectable with microcontrollers or other circuits. It accepts input from the PIR sensor and translates it into signals that your microcontroller can interpret. In addition to the aforementioned PIR sensor, the board also contains a small ATTiny404 microcontroller, as well as a switch for selecting the I2C address. This breakout board comes with 2 easyC connectors for easy integration into the easyC system. If you do not wish to use easyC, the module can also be used via standard headers.

Pressure & temperature sensor BMP180 breakout
Pressure & temperature sensor BMP180 breakout

Ever wanted to build your own weather station using Arduino? Then the BMP180 breakout board with precision sensor from Bosch might interest you. The digital sensor on the board precisely measures the changes in barometric pressure and temperature. It uses the piezoresistive effect to gather the information. Since the pressure varies depending on height, the sensor can measure altitude too. Very low current consumption and voltage allow this type of sensor to be used in many modern devices.

 

The design is 5V ready with an onboard regulator for 3.3V. The breakout board’s standard current consumption is very low, only 5 µA. It uses an I2C interface, and the I2C address is 0x77. No soldering, nor need for distinguishing between SDA and SCL is required due to easyC. The sensor has integrated EEPROM memory with data for calibration. The pressure is measured in steps of 1hPa (=0.01hPa =0,01mbar), and 0.1°C for temperature.

 

Product usage tips:

If there is an error while using the breakout board, see if it’s connected properly. Take a look at the pinout. If everything is properly connected, check if the I2C address of the breakout board is correct prior to programming it. The I2C 7-bit address should be 0x77. If everything is correctly connected and the I2C address is right, look through your code once again. There might be some bugs in the code that are stopping the sensor from working as it should.

 

BMP180 breakout board works very well in combination with any Dasduino board and OLED I2C 0.96” display breakout board. All of them use easyC so they can be connected in a matter of seconds. The BMP180 sensor can measure the barometric pressure and temperature, while the OLED display can show them. The breakout board also comes with two mounting holes so you can attach it onto something and it won’t budge.

 

To keep the sensor working for a long while, we would advise you not to use it in extreme conditions. Going over or below the temperature range will surely damage the sensor. Same with the pressure. Keep track of the current going through it. Allowing too high of a current through the breakout board will burn the sensor and render it completely useless.

Load-cell amplifier HX711 board
Load-cell amplifier HX711 board

The HX711 breakout allows you to easily read the weight value from a load-cell sensor (mass sensor). This small ADC is of great precision and is capable of measuring very small changes in the load-cell resistance, whose signals are amplified with the built-in amplifier. Subsequently, this same information is digitally transmitted to a microcontroller that simply converts the numbers obtained into the actual weight. That’s why this breakout is very useful for projects with scales or presence sensors, either for individuals or industry.

 

Breakout supports the connection of load cells that are made by the Wheatstone Bridge technique, like most of the load cells. They usually have four wires, two for power supply (E + and E, most often red and black), and two for signal (A + and A-, most commonly white and green wire). The pins for these wires are also indicated on the PCB and it is easy to connect.

Product usage tips:

If you encounter errors when using the breakout board, see if it’s connected properly. First, look at the pinout on the board and your microcontroller. If everything seems OK, look at the connections on the breakout board. If all the wiring is correct, make sure that the breakout board’s I2C address is right. It should be 0x70. Everything as it should be so far? Go through your code again. There might be some bugs that are stopping things from working as expected.

 

The SHTC3 breakout board works wonderfully in combination with Dasduino Core and 16×2 easyC LCD. You can display temperature in one row and humidity in the other.

Simple fire sensor board
Simple fire sensor board

This module is a phototransistor that is capable of detecting infrared radiation. Since fire radiates a large number of infrared rays, this sensor will detect them, but this is not its only application. Wherever there are infrared waves, the sensor will detect them (including those from the sun). Using the built-in comparator on its outputs gives either digital (HIGH / LOW) or analog (0V-5V) signals, depending on the intensity of the IR radiation.
